How to Cure Your Boring Kitchen with Pink_image Click image to enlarge
The color pink has long been associated with girls and femininity, but in October pink represents a cause that doesn't know gender, it is breast cancer awareness. Breast cancer awareness charities have spanned from athletic events to home décor. In your home, from the vacuum you use on your floor to the kitchen mixer your use to make a cake, pink is now fashionable for more reasons than just appearance. Your kitchen loves this trend and if you're trying to bring a boring kitchen into the modern day, see how pink is the perfect color!

Add accents of color with pink: If you're thinking you have to use the “hit-yourself-over-the-head" pink, you are wrong. Consider taking a neutral palette and add bar stools and pops of color with countertop appliances and décor. Ever notice that the cook is happier when they love their kitchen? Neutral concrete countertops and white cabinetry can make your kitchen sophisticated with an edge of whimsy.

Wall color can transform your kitchen: Wall color is the easiest and cheapest way to transform your kitchen. How about using creamy beige above your cabinets and then use a shot of flamingo pink from your countertop to the underside of the upper cabinet instead of a backsplash? Paint can change as easy as your personality! If you're daring, bring pink into your flooring, wall art and cookware. Your kitchen is an extension of you; love the space you cook in!

Kitchen cabinetry makes the space: Have you ever noticed how a gorgeous color of cabinetry can make or break your space? Pink doesn't have to be refrained to only walls and fabrics. Pale pink lacquered cabinetry to hot pink painted wood cabinets, pink is the unthought-of color that's the perfect conversation for your kitchen. To counter balance bright pink; consider using neutral countertops in black or white. Door cabinetry should be kept neutral as well, to keep the eye from bouncing around the kitchen.

Pair pink with rich color: To add contrast to pink, pair it with rich colors that will bring visual interest and mask the ‘femininity' of the color. Pair pink with espresso brown, navy blue, apple green, or heather gray to give your kitchen a modern chic appeal. For a contemporary look pair your favorite stainless steel appliances, espresso brown cabinetry and light bamboo colored flooring. You'll love the look and the feel!
